There’s no denying the millinery world’s sudden hold on fashion, as well as broader pop culture. From Mad Men to Gaga, hats and headpieces are everywhere. I feel like we’re constantly finding new milliners we like, new headpiece concepts we’re intrigued by, and new ideas about how to incorporate them into our wardrobes.
That’s why I was so excited to spend some time with Brooklyn-based millinery I Love Factory. Duo Christopher Garbushian and Laurel St. Romain have designed hats for a ton of celebrities (including the aforementioned Lady) over the last two years. They’ve also received plenty of editorial attention, from Japanese Nylon to Teen Vogue to Tavi, who wore their cone hat in Pop. I Love Factory’s pieces have even appeared on Gossip Girl.
